ISTD Awards brand identity
ISTD Awards visual language detail

Life imitates art imitates life

The identity took inspiration from the judges voting mechanic itself — each judge using a different coloured post-it note to nominate entries to progress to the next stage. This visual language was then used typographically, using coloured squares to highlight and draw attention to key messages.
